Former New York Jets cornerback Andrew Davison was in for a workout on Sunday, and the team will decide by Monday whether to sign him. He was released last summer and signed with the Dallas Cowboys, where he spent the entire 2003 season.
Defensive coordinator Donnie Henderson isn't concerned with the team finishing with just one sack against New Orleans . . .
"I'm not interested in sacks," said Henderson. "I'm interested in getting to the quarterback and hitting him. Sacks are an individual thing. Hits are a team goal." . . .
Quarterback Brooks Bollinger watched practice with an electrostimulation device on his right knee, and has been ruled out of the team's game Saturday at Indianapolis. The team expects him back for their third preseason game against the Giants. Against the Colts, Chad Pennington will play a little over a quarter, and then third-string quarterback Ricky Ray could play the rest of the game, with fourth-stringer Chris Finlen possibly playing some late in the game.
Jets coach Herman Edwards said on Sunday that the team has no intention of signing a veteran backup this week . . .
Wide receiver Matt Dominguez made a spectacular one-handed catch down the left sideline at the end of practice. Unfortunately for the former CFL star, he suffered a shoulder injury on the play, and it looks like it could be serious. He's had an excellent camp, and looks like he belongs on an NFL roster . . .
Cornerback Ray Mickens, who has been nursing an knee injury from an early camp collision with defensive end John Abraham, might have made the knee worse in practice on Sunday. He was taken to the trainer's room with the assistance of trainers prior to the end of Sunday's session. With Abraham out, rookie Derrick Strait moved into the nickel role . . .
Linebacker Eric Barton finally returned to practice from a lingering calf injury that has kept him out of most of the two-a-days. He seems to be 100 percent healed based on the mobility he displayed on Sunday . . .
Safety Reggie Tongue was held out of practice once again. He was hurt on the first day of training camp, and hasn't played since. Considering the fact that Tongue took a while to learn the system with the Seattle Seahawks, this lengthy absence doesn't bode well for him being prepared to start the opener against Cincinnati. Fifth round pick Erik Coleman has been starting in his place. . .
